Something spooky. Bruschetta. Grandpa's honey salad.

Apple Vampire Teeth

Last night we started getting in the Halloween mood with a festive family dinner. We made these spooky meatball eyeballs. Fun right? Ella was a bit full from eating too much edamame after school...but my nieces and nephew dug in! Thanks to Damaris at Kitchen Corners for the great idea! 

The menu:

Spooky chicken meatballs

  • Olive oil
  • 1 Slice white bread, torn
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 6 links organic chicken sausage, removed from casing 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 handful fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Whole black olives, pitted
  • Handful of frozen peas
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl pour milk over torn bread to soften. In a larger bowl combine sausage, egg, thyme, parsley, pargigiano, and bread after excess milk has been squeezed out. Scoop tablespoons of mixture, roll into a ball and place on an oiled cookie sheet.  Press olive into each meatball and top with a frozen pea. When all have been rolled and spookified, bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes. Edges should be browned and meatballs firm yet scary. Serve in pairs over pasta.

Store bought.

Grandpa's Honey Salad

2 heads romaine, chopped
2 parts Tarragon vinegar
1 part Honey
1 lemon, squeezed over chopped romaine
Romano cheese, shaved

Pour vinaigrette over romaine and top with shaved Parmesan. Easy and super delicious. Thanks Grandpa.

Bruscetta 2 ways

 I'm not convinced that something like brucetta requires a recipe.... as long as you combine and chop up something fresh, almost everything is good on toasty bread.

1.) Combine some chopped tomatoes, garlic, basil, drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper, drizzle of balsamic.

2.) Italian Guacamole: Chopped avocado, basil, shaved Parmesan, salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.

both over warm toasty bread..llightly buttered or oiled of course.....and preferably homemade every Sunday :)

Halve apples, cut out a slice from front, pop in the vampire teeth (slivered almonds).

What spooky treats will you make?

Totally agree regarding the bruscetta-

That (#1) is a perfect combination of flavors- and I love the Italian guacamole! So simple, but never thought to combine those ingredients!

Oven is heating up right this moment for the homemade oreos- with orange filling (my first 'Halloween treat' of the season:).
